When I burned this show to CD, I wrote on it 'intense and psychedelic'. An audience recording that once you get settled in and used to the sound, the rewards are aplenty. From Feedback to Feedback a whirlwind journey that includes a 20+ minute Caution. You gotta love a set where the Caution is far longer than the Lovelight.

Not your easy listening . . .

GREAT tdih, thanks for posting! Tell's review just couldn't sum things up better.

The soundboard portion on the Fillmore West Complete Recordings contains the end of Lovelight, Caution, and the final feedback, about 30 mins. total. But a soundboard recording of this entire show is probably at the top of my GD fantasy wish list; this is seriously some of the best stuff they ever did...

Such an incredible psychedelic barnburner. "Whoooaaaaa, look at all those pretty flames ....... "

Somehow I'm picturing WT's '68 cabin blasting this at the '90s cabin, and the image looks like that scene in Back to the Future where Michael J Fox blasts rock at his sleeping dad and threatens to melt his brains. ("I'm Darth Vader from the Planet Vulcan" ...)

The energy of this show more than compensates for the sound quality of the recording.
Not sure if this version is any better, but it does feature a nice review by an infrequent reviewer, who goes on to say “one of the most important shows of the year, and the time you devote to it will be rewarded.”

Vapors, that's really funny. I've had this copy for years and so when I saw that the other copy on the archive was also an audience, I listened to the first few minutes of the first Feedback and The Eleven and decided to settle with my copy in hand. I normally scroll down to scan for reviews. I must not have done so in this case . . . for some reason, I kinda felt that WT would be taken with this show.

Pretty incredible that this was recorded at all. I've often wondered if the SBD exists, and if a soundboard could capture the same intensity.

I'm not sure which copy is 'better'. The one I've been listening to seems quieter and maybe less saturated, though the copy you recommended seems louder and therefore has a better 'presence'. Folks might want to check out both, hardly a waste of time in my book.

At least a portion of this performance was recorded at the soundboard. The extraordinary rendition of Caution is on the bonus disc that came with the 1969 Fillmore West boxed set.
